Inventor Engineering Support
protoCAD services fit well with inventors developing products through utilization of our 24 years of experience with design and manufacturing.
protoCAD assists inventors in all phases of product development. We can help you conceptualize and define your product or idea early in the design cycle and model your product using our state of the art Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. Once your product definition and CAD modeling are complete, we can help you prototype your initial design concepts and help with any limited production quantities or sales models needed using our in house rapid prototyping equipment. We have worked with everyone from individual inventors to Fortune 500 companies. We will assist you with outstanding personalized service to handle all or limited portions of your product development, prototyping, or pilot manufacturing needs.
protoCAD utilizes CREO to create designs and support design engineers. Designs previously done include a night vision goggle, neti pot, volleyball setter, roller coaster toy track, ejection seat rocket motor, automobile air vent, satellite, dental tray, and tracheotomy training fixture.
protoCAD was awarded a number of utility and design patents. We produce drawings required for inventor patent applications.
